Royal Wedding

You can’t look at any media this week without reading about the Royal Wedding. The wedding between Prince William and Catherine Middleton takes place on Friday.

My Ladies Bible Study group has been one of the highlights of living in Baku.   We meet every Thursday morning in homes in an area of Baku called Stone Pay.  We start with food of course–do women ever get together when food is not one of the central attractions????  Then we gather together for a […]
